The History of OSCAR Pet Foods
OSCAR Pet Foods is a family business that started life making good honest pet food for working dogs and supermarkets. It was a fantastic start with formulations for one of the top four supermarkets and a well known (celebrity endorsed), brand of vegetarian products.
However, we found that customers had little guidance on what to feed their pets. Choosing the right food was a minefield and the level of service seemed non existent. Getting it right was so important because, just like humans, pets are what they eat.
A family business with the first OSCAR franchise established in 1994
We have always believed that when it comes to nutrition it's too important to settle for second best. In 1994, we took matters into our own hands and the first OSCAR franchise was established. The Complete Pet Care Service was born and since then OSCAR has kept a firm focus on the developments in pet food manufacturing, while devoting time to our growing franchise network.
"Now every Oscar pet has a Nutritional Advisor to assist with the right diet for them".
We discovered that a local OSCAR Nutritional Advisor is the best person to give friendly, expert advice. Whether the pet is fat or thin, young or old, healthy, has allergies or is generally tearing the place apart, OSCAR can help. Our aim is to make life easier for pet owners across the UK.
OSCAR customers are delighted with our service and remain loyal, often referring friends and family.
Freedom to be your own boss
Our unique business system continues to build on years of success, offering individuals the freedom to run their own business and benefit from a lifestyle dedicated to working with pets to deliver a happier, healthier and longer life.
Free Home Delivery
Convenience defines the unique OSCAR opportunity. Our friendly customer service includes free home delivery, a free meal (sampled in the home), a quality competitive brand (no middle man) as well as nutritional and behavioural advice. It's what makes our tried and tested formula a winner.
Success Breeds Success
With a wealth of experience in the OSCAR network we are continually improving the system. One of our first ideas was to offer a Freephone Helpline to ensure that every OSCAR pet had a personal Nutritional Advisor to assist with the right diet - and that was only the beginning....
Every new franchisee, as part of their training package, learns all aspects of nutrition, backed by an Oscar trainer, and a team of experts in nutritional, behavioural and veterinary matters.
OSCAR, under its own trademark and via a network of franchisees, aims to bring awareness to the responsibilities and values of being a pet owner.
OSCAR is a full member of the British Franchise Association (BFA), the Pet Food Manufacturers’ Association (PFMA) and has been awarded Investors in People.
We also work closely with national banks to support all franchising opportunities.
Anyone can apply – from bank managers, accountants, teachers and manual workers to farmers wishing to diversify. For those retiring from HM Forces to Police or IT workers - ideal for veterinary nurses or carers and many more. They have all become OSCAR franchisees.
